Now Playing Tracks

The Daily Chunter #73: 22nd August 2014

Hi everyone!

I had a piano lesson today. That was okay. Obviously I couldn’t practise while I was away, and I’ve had under a week to get back in the swing of things, so I felt like I was playing terribly. In fact, I’m pretty sure I was playing terribly compared to usual. I was on the verge of tears at multiple points throughout the forty-five minute lesson, the hyper-sensitive thing that I am, but my piano teacher is just such a star. She is so wholly positive, which is exactly what someone like me needs. I supply the negativity by myself, so I need a supportive teacher. Gah, I’m so needy. It pains me.

My parents and sister went into Lewes today to get the last few bits of her secondary school uniform for September, so my brother and I had the house to ourselves for a few hours. Which amounted to both of use immediately rushing to computers and staying there for the duration of their excursion. I watched episodes 3-7 of Sword Art Online, which is still friggin’ awesome. Kirito and Asuna are so cool. Also Egil. I wish they would stop providing episodic and apparently completely disposable girls for Kirito to interact with, but they’re cute as hell, so maybe I don’t mind? There’s a whole lot of ‘damsel in distress’-ing involved, but Asuna is such a badass that it clearly isn’t a rampantly sexist show. Kirito’s masculinity isn’t really a part of it, so much as his wisdom and compassion, which are hardly alpha-man traits in television. He just happens to be a guy. That’s how it feels. Anyway, point is, I love it.  

Oh God, I fangirled again, I’m so sorry. I’ll just go now.

Bye! xx

The Daily Chunter #72: 21st August 2014

Hello everyone!

So firstly, I got my GCSE results today. I’m very happy with them. Honestly, they’re better than I expected. I certainly didn’t expect an A in Art, and the A* in R.E. was a pleasant surprise too. We went out for Chinese to celebrate, which was awesome. I just love Chinese food so much.

I also watched the first and part of the second episodes of ‘Sword Art Online’ at the recommendation of a friend, and so far I’m really enjoying it. I love anime. It’s just the most beautiful art style, and along with the interesting character designs and utterly different storylines to Western television, it’s just a wonderful and engaging experience. Once I get through SOA, I plan to tackle ‘Attack on Titan’, though with school I don’t know how much time I’ll get for it.

Well that’s it for today. I hope you all are having/have had a lovely day.

Bye! xx
